This year has been very different for us all (to say the least) and the majority of us are now spending a great more deal at home than usual. Today is the last day of the school term for my boys for a week and usually I would be booking in days out and activities to keep the boys enterainted during their week off, but for this Halloween half term with the rise in coronavirus cases again I think we're going to be spending most of the time at home with a few autumnual walks thrown in there too. 

I know a lot of parents will be in the exact same boat with their children at home for a week and the prospect of a lot less days out booked in than normal. And so a week ago I sat and made a long list of some ideas of things that we could do with the boys from home to make sure this half term is just as fun as the others and I thought I would share the list of ideas for anyone else who is currenty looking for some inspiration for the halloween half term at home!
